Shopping

Source: Games Without Music For Children
Category: GAMES FOR THE SCHOOLROOM





The shopman should stand behind a table or desk, and have articles made
up in parcels ready for sale. 'The Shop' described in 'Kindergarten
Guide,' p. 230,[1] would do nicely for this game.

The children who go shopping should be dressed in outdoor costume, and
each carry a basket. They should also have money; imitation cardboard
coins (for cost[2]) would do. (Customer walks up to the counter.)

SHOPMAN

Good morning, ma'am, how do you do? And pray what can I get for you?

CUSTOMER

Good morning, shopman, will you please
To weigh for me a pound of cheese?
[The packet is handed to customer.]

CUSTOMER

Here is a shilling [handing it], eightpence take,

SHOPMAN

And fourpence change [giving fourpence to customer] just twelvepence
make.

The children should also ask for other articles, without using the
rhymes, and they should be encouraged to speak clearly and distinctly,
and to address the shopman civilly. This will be likely to assist them
in going errands for mother.
